I have created an animated menu in after effects and imported it into encore. The 'play' button is on screen throughout the animated menu and i don't want it to appear until the animation is complete. is there a way of setting the button to appear at a certain time so it isnt on screen until the animation is complete?

I ran into this, too, so I'd be interested if there is a clean solution. I worked around it by adding my 'play' button as a graphic within my animation (when I wanted it to appear) instead of part of the Photoshop menu. I'm assuming your play button is a graphic and not an actual button subpicture. If it is a subpicture, then you need to change your loop point to the time where you want them to be active and appear.
